Click to preview The Battle of Sacramento photo book

Sacramento, KY, was the site of an American Civil War battle between Union Major Eli H. Murray and Confederate Colonel Nathan Bedford Forrest (Considered the south's most brilliant commander) on December 28, 1861. This event is also known as "Forrest's First" and was the largest Cavalry Battle in the State of Kentucky.

The town of Sacramento holds an annual reen-actment of the battle in which local residents voluntarily participate, as well as professional and hobbyist reenactors. I talked my dad into going to this event with me as he has always been interested in guns and the civil war. This was our first time to attend an event like this. I wanted to get as many photos as I could while I was there and I took over 400 shots.

We were there for the last day of the three day event. (May 15th, 16th and 17th., 2009) As it turns out, the main battle reenactment was on the Sunday that we were there.
